Extracts from actual letters sent to various councils and housing 
associations throughout the UK: 

1. I want some repairs done to my cooker as it has backfired and burnt my 
knob off.

his foot in the hole in his back passage. 
3. .. and their 18 year old son is continually banging his balls against my 
4. I wish to report that tiles are missing from the outside toilet roof. I 
think it was bad wind the other night that blew them off. 
5. My lavatory seat is cracked, where do I stand. 
6. I am writing on behalf of my sink, which is coming away from the wall. 
7. Will you please send someone to mend the garden path. My wife tripped and

fell on it yesterday and now she is pregnant. We are getting married in 
September and we would like it in the garden before we move into the house. 
8. I request permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen.

6am his cock wakes me up and its now getting too much for me. 
16. The man next door has a large erection in the back garden, which is 
unsightly and dangerous.

still have no satisfaction.

fungus growing in it.
